long war we launched after 9/11 has been ended in iraq. and all of those variables factor into decisions about how we mark this day as americans. but also how our leaders or our would be leaders mark it. how we commemorate 9/11 is a work in progress. we saw today a decision by the white house and the obama campaign to have vice president joe biden mark the day in a way that was not political. it was just about remembering the people who were lost that day and commemorating the sacrifices people have made in this country because of 9/11. while both sides in the presidential campaign suspended their negative ads for the day out of respect for the anniversary, there's no ban on campaigning today. there's no rule about what you can and cannot do. mitt romney gave a speech today before the national guard association in reno, nevada, and at times it sounded like his normal stump speech. he did go out of his way to attack president obama for defense cuts that are part of the sequester deal. which incidentally, are cuts that paul ryan voted for in congress. that's the kind of thin
of countries including yemen, somalia, and iraq. in particular al qaeda in the arabian peninsula is the group most likely we think to attempt attacks against the united states. we saw this in may with the disruption of an plot to take down an airliner. other groups such as the al qaeda in iraq, as well as militants based in pakistan all pose threats to our citizens and interests in those regions of the formed. -- world. we are also focused on threats poses by iran and hezbollah. iran remains the foremost state sponsor of terrorism over the world. over the past year the threat from iranian sponsored terrorism has increased. inside the united states we remain vigilant to prevent violent extremists from carrying out attacks in the name of al qaeda. this past week the f.b.i. arrest add chicago man after he tried to blow up a crowded bar in the city. a federal judge sentence add virginia man to 0 years in prison for plotting to bomb the u.s. capitol. these plots highlight the danger that al qaeda-inspired extremists pose to our country. beyond these threats we face a period of unrest and a period
and fought alongside this country prosperous soldiers in iraq and afghanistan -- this country's bravest soldiers in iraq and afghanistan. like all veterans, i swore an oath to defend this country. our country made a promise, too. a promise to support us overseas and to fight for us when we came home. i am here tonight to say that president obama has kept that promise. >> yes, sir! >> i noticed -- i now live with my wife and son in the great state of colorado. many of the men and women with whom i served never returned home. others came home bearing visible and invisible scars of battle. when they and their families needed help, our commander in chief was there for them. from extending veterans benefits to strengthening the v.a. health system, president obama knows that the military is the standard for american values. it was wrong that men and women that i served with could be told that they were not good enough just because of their sexual orientation. [applause] soldiers that i trusted with my life and fought alongside with could be discharged simply because of who they loved. preside
officer. host: have you traveled overseas? caller: i have done two tours in iraq and two in afghanistan. host: what about president obama leaving iraq and planning to leave afghanistan? aq, he should've gotten a status of forces agreement with the government over there and we should of maintains an air base so we would have a presence. now we have left and recently there were saying how many shipments of weapons from iran are flying over iraqi airspace into syria to support the assad regime with all the atrocities committed over there. in terms of afghanistan, joe biden was the only person in washington who got afghanistan right from the beginning. if you look at the debate with the obama surge happened, when we were going to decide between $10,000, 40,000, and 80,000 troops, it was joe biden, he was the only one who said that, let's stick to our issues and our priorities. i was wounded in afghanistan during a a non-transmission, walking down the street in a dusty village that we were being pulled out of. i was nearly killed for essentially nothing, trying to bring some kind of ideal of
in the navy where he served in iraq and afghanistan. glen doherty was 42 years old. jenna: u.s. beefing up military presence off the libyan coast, ordering two destroyers into the region. the uss mcfall is set to arrive within days. both ships are armed with tomahawk cruise missiles that can be fired at targets on land. the navy is calling this a precautionary step. the ships are not operating under a specific mission but we're keeping an eye on that. we're learning more about the groups that may or may not have been behind those attacks across the middle east. in libya fox news confirming that u.s. intelligence is focusing on a handful of organizations including the libyan islamic fighting group. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge live in washington. maybe an unfamiliar group with some of us, catherine. what are we learning about the investigation into libya. >> reporter: thank you, jenna. fox news confirmed the fbi has a team on the ground in libya to identify suspects, gather evidence and assess whether a prosecution is possible. as fox news was first to report the targ
were very much focused on iraq, but you speak to the critics, and they will say that they -- it did not achieve what they were hoping to achieve. that really to train up the afghan armed forces. it provides a stable environment to a certain extent to allow that transfer of power, that training program to operate, but i'm not exactly quite sure whether or not, don, it's achieved its ultimate goal. in the process this has cost a lot of moy, and do date more than 2,000 u.s. soldiers have died. >> we have heard a lot about those green on blue attacks with the recent uptick in violence. especially those green on blue attacks. is there a timing problem here with the troop departure? >> it's certainly not ideal. you get the impression that everyone wants to get out of here. to tell you the truth, don, when you speak to troops off the record that is what they will definitely tell you. i mean, they've had to -- this was always kind of the plan that president obama boem when he gave the green light for this surge back in 2009, he said those 33,000 troops, they will be leaving come september 2
demonstrated the courage to oppose the war in iraq, as president he showed the determination to bring our troops back home. [ applause ] barack obama is the kind of leader my father wrote about in "profiles and courage." he doesn't just do what is easy, he does what is hard. he does what is right. my father couldn't run for a second term. it was left to his brothers, his family and the generation they inspired to fight for the america they believed in. now it's up to a new generation our children's generation to carry america forward. so let me say to the young and the young at heart, barack obama is only president because you worked for him because you believed in him because uconn vinceed your parents to vote for him. young people have always led america towards a brighter future. it happened in 1960. it happened in 2008 and if you show the same spirit in this election as you did in the last, i know that we'll make history again on november 6. thank you. [cheers and applause] >> woodruff: caroline kennedy daughter of late president john f kennedy, niece to the late senator ted kennedy.
to take on iraq and afghanistan. al qaeda is nothing more than an interdependent ngo of a very pernicious kind. tavis: interdependence, we heard some of this at the rnc, and we have heard some of that at the democratic convention this week, but speak to me about this notion, this gospel of american exceptionalism that some americans are still preaching. >> tavis, that is such an important question. politicians have to do it. when president obama was elected, he had made a speech where he talked about america is part of the world, and he went to istanbul and cairo in his first year and talked about independence and the need to work together, and he was punished by the media and his own party, and the result is he talks mainly about america, we are number one, god bless america, and i do one god to bless america, but i want them to bless the whole world. the focus on the american exhibition where, first of all, every nation thinks it is exceptional. in switzerland, they talk about it, and in france, they talk about it that the french think similarly. and this does not mean that we are excep
hard to get this dofnlt i hope we can confirm our ambassadors to iraq and afghanistan, and the continuing resolution to fund the government for six months. republicans say this congress has been unproductive. but if republicans want to know why it's been unproductive, they should take a look in the mirror. benjamin franklin once said, "well-done is better than well-said." close quote. "well-done is better and well-said." so it is time republicans stopped talking about how much they wanted to get things done and started working with us to actually get things done. the presiding officer: the republican leader. mr. mcconnell: yesterday dozens of republican senators came to the senate floor one after the other to register their complete frustration with the way democrats are running this place. never before -- never -- have a president and a majority party in the senate done so little to address challenges as great as the ones our nation faces right now. never. i mean, we've got a $16 trillion debt, and they haven't bothered to put together a budget in three years. they ha

," which was somewhat satisfying for someone from my background. no one would argue we were at war in iraq or afghanistan. i wanted evidence he believed we were at war with the groups that had attacked us on 9/11. in august 2009, my wife and i were in phoenix, ariz., for a vfw convention. president obama was the speaker. the president explicitly said, "we are at war with al qaeda and its affiliates." foreign and domestic, law enforcement intelligence. the president was going to use all the authority he had in his backpack like his predecessor. law enforcement authorities when they were useful, but he would not limit himself just to law enforcement authority. he would actually use his authority as commander in chief. after a few weeks in office, president obama was awarded the nobel peace prize. some have said he wanted because he was not president bush and the europeans wanted to confirm that fact. do you recall his acceptance speech in scandinavia? do you recall at the scene at? i watched him carefully. he was here at the protium -- podium and teh camera is here. you can see teh back o --
to himself, that is where the real mistake was made. >> americans were dying in the iraq war and as all of a sudden piety that we cannot have a discussion about american policy, it's ridiculous. this is a story created by the media. as the state department itself implied in withdrawing the statement, not only is it a humiliation and embarrassment to apologize, it does not work. >> he was never apologizing. that was just rhetoric. he never said it was an apology. he never said that word. >> dissolving is nonsense. a junior press officer at the embassy wanted to say something nice to the muslims. some press guy, not the secretary of state or the president. then you have these war rooms with this instant reaction, rapid-fire. they just fire off, just shoot off. romney came in and blasted away. it puts him in a position -- >> the embassy issued a statement. who cares to put it out? they view this as the only statement. >> it was not an apology. it was issued in anticipation of the reaction to that film. it took a clear position that affected the u.s. the announcing that kind of activity res

, then we go to iraq, saddam hussein, he was a good boy at one point. we have to learn to shoot straight when it comes to foreign policy. host: i have to get some other voices in here. bob? go ahead. caller: thank you for taking my call. i had a personal remembrances about 9/11. i woke up at 11:00. my mother, who had died of alzheimer's, said i needed to see this thing on television. i was speaking with a friend of mine over at the spartan route. i said -- you know, these guys are muslim fundamentalists and fanatics. they might have their real names on the manifest. go look at that. follow the money. they went back and confirmed what the fbi report said from earlier that year, which had been kind of pushed under. we got lucky in that times square bombing. we solved that one. thank god the bomb did not off. but you know, we have had 10,000 people die in that war. thank god we got osama bin laden and it was a police action. thank you so much. host: how should we mark the day? last night on facebook we ask all of you to comment on how america has changed in the 11 years. host: you can put y
we have to go after iraq. even when this intelligence came in, he said, no, we ought to be attacking iraq. what did you make looking at it? cheney was the intelligence guy in the white house, between bush and the cia guys. he was cutting it off and refining it and using it his way. what did you think of cheney's role in all of this? >> cheney was obviously instrumental, chris. and the administration was driven, i think, from the time it came into office by a very ideological agenda around getti getting saddam hussein and f finishing the work with the neocons and that work, considered the unfinished work from 1991, to get saddam hussein and find a pretense to do it. they were ideologically blinded to what the reality was in these warnings. at best, in curious, about pursuing the hints that were dropped. >> let's take a look at condoleezza rice, who i actually like personally. here she is saying something i'm afraid is always going to be on her record book. here she is testifying before the 9/11 commission. she was quizzed about how much information she discussed with president bush ab
